today i found out the wonderful goodness of tea tree shampoo. so i was thinking and decided to post this question. what is your fav. shampoo to use on your dreads, and what are you fav. products? or if you make a homemade sort of concoction what do you put in it or use?

Merry christmas Pia <3

Yesterday I spent most of the day doing Pia's hair.
Around 1:30am I finally finished her very cute 50 little newborn ones.
At least I got a before shot, you see my camera died.. But I will get after pics tomorrow or something. They shrunk a lot, and Pia look's sweet =)
So many people commented on them in school today, someone even decided to call us "Karianne I and Karianne II"

The top of my head is... strange?
Loose hairs basically. I find it odd.
Underneath all the top ones at the back of my head I have very tight nice dreads..
I feel like sleeping on them pulls hairs out and makes it all messy.
Washing them also makes em fall down.
They were 7 weeks yesterday if anyone wonders.
I am also considering rubberbands for whenever I go family swimming...
Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

[sorry bout text only, next time I will show you Pia <3]

Hello everyone! My name's Nicole, and I've been lurking about here for about a week and a half, when I made the (sort of) spontaneous decision to get dreadlocks. At this point, I don't have much to say; I've been reading the memories and other posts, and it's all been very helpful.

I've been trying to get a good picture of my new babies, and have had a bit of difficulty....but here's what I've come up with...

I've got some loose hair action going on, as my retail job has allowed for very little spare time in the holiday season, and I've barely been able to care for them. But I'm doing all I can, and hopefully they'll look better soon.

And it'll be nice when the shampoo I ordered comes in. Does anyone know approximately how long Dr. Bronner's takes to ship orders?
